Interpretive bias

Interpretive Bias

A thorough assessment of this is available on LITFL. In short, it is the bias which creeps in not during study design or publication but afterwards- when the reader finishes the paper, and interprets its findings.

Confirmation bias

Difference in the interpretation of evidence which supports your opinion, as compared to evidence whih challenges it.

Rescue bias

Discounting a study by finding selective faults within it

Mechanism bias

A decrease in scepticism produced by credible-sounding scientific foundations for the study

Orientation bias

The hypothesis itself introduces prejudice and determines experimental outcome
